6:00pm
it's a temporary position at paragon outlets in livermore set to open november 8. it might not be her dream job, but... >> feels good just to be working again. >> reporter: while the new job numbers sound positive with the addition of 171,000 jobs, the reality is, many of those are part time. >> we have 8.3 million workers nationwide who are working involuntarily part time that is they are counted as employed as payroll jobs but they are working less than 35 hours. many only 5, 10, 15 hours. >> reporter: they are called the underemployed. people like matt who make ends meet with multiple jobs, stocking shelves at two jobs. >> it's hard. >> reporter: companies rely on part-timers to cut costs. one group went from something 70% full timers 20 years ago to
6:01pm
now 70% part-timers. they are also using new technology that sets employee hours by tracking the ebb and flow of customer traffic. >> technology destroys jobs. >> reporter: for people like karen, part time is enough time for now. >> hoping this will be the start of the next big thing for me. >> reporter: so the jobs market is gaining momentum but many of those out there are paying less and less. meanwhile, the paragon outlet mall in livermore is in the process of hiring more than 2,000 part time and full-time workers. in livermore, elissa harrington, cbs 5. >> a new poll shows a dramatic shift in the way californians think about the death penalty. cbs 5 political reporter grace lee on how they may be ready to end capital punishment here. grace. >> reporter: records the field poll has been asking this questions for six decades typically they would vote no supporting the death penalty.
6:02pm
right now at this time in fact cycle most people vote no if they're undecided. that's not what we're seeing in this poll. it surprised a lot of people including the field commissioner himself. >> however this initiative to replace the death penalty with life in prison without the possibility of parole is gaining steam. reporter: the crisscross shows that 45% of californians want to get rid of the death penalty by voting yes on proposition 34 while 38% want to keep tha maximum penalty. >> this is another case where if this should pass a big reason for its passage would be because of ethnic voters support. latinos and african-americans are more likely to be supporting the repeal of the death penalty than are whites and asian-americans. >> reporter: supporters of prop 34 want to replace the death penalty with life in prison without parole. their campaign spokesman said it can save the state $130 million every year which is why they are not surprised to see the poll turn their way.
6:03pm
>> the truth, we are spending money on something that simply doesn't work. we have in the last 34 years sentenced 900 people to death and we have carried out 13 executions. that means 99% of the time when we said this person was going to be executed we lied. >> reporter: those who want to keep the death penalty believe that this will not save the state money, rather, it's a matter of public safety because the death penalty could deter criminals. >> talk to police officers, deputy sheriffs, those that are out on the front lines every day, they will tell you that they know that without having the possibility of the death penalty out there, you know, their lives are at stake. we don't think those numbers are ak rapt. >> reporter: whether they are accurate or not will only matter on election day but even the field poll director says it's not going to be easy for
6:04pm
either side to get above 50%. >> the question is, will it make it above 50% by election day? i don't know. this is a really uncertainty. >> reporter: so one more note about prop 34 that it's supposed to shift state money. the savings that you get from getting rid of the death penalty process, getting rid of all those legal fees is supposed to move over to law enforcement and crime labs and the idea for that is to put more resources into solving current crimes including murders and reported rapes. so there are a lot of different issues involved with prop 34. ken? >> yeah. it looks like people maybe they're changing from years past here in california. we'll see. grace lee, thank you. well, south bay races taking a nasty turn. it's all about the wording on a campaign mailer that one of the candidates says is meant to tap into the ugly side of voters. cbs 5 reporter len ramirez on what it could mina very close race. >> reporter: i've covered san jose politics for a lot of
6:05pm
years but have never seen city council races quite like this. it's all about pension reform and the forces for and against it. it has turned civil campaigns into bitter battles. >> fiscal responsibility is definitely needed in city hall. >> reporter: johnnie and robert bronstein both have solid reasons for getting into san jose politics. >> crime in san jose is at its highest rate in 10 years so we need to fully staff the police department. >> reporter: but in these the final days of a tight race for the city council seat in district 10, the campaign has taken a nasty turn. >> i think some of these pieces are racist and i don't know any other way to explain it. >> reporter: khamis say this is a thinly veiled attack on his palestinian heritage around a darkened image of him it says arab-american leaders mobilize their constituents, too extreme. >> arab extremists is on the news every day trying to paint me an an extremist and i think
6:06pm
that's despicable. >> we didn't have control over that and i know johnny's feelings were hurt by that. >> reporter: the mailer didn't come from mr. bronstein but came from a firefighter's pac that supports him. >> we didn't line it and i wish it didn't come out but i don't think there was anything factually wrong in the piece. i thought that, you know, it tried to point out some economic extreme economic points that he takes. >> reporter: with the future of pension reform hanging until the balance it has been a bitter and expensive political season for several candidates running for san jose city council. an alleged sign stealing incident caught on tape has tainted the campaign in district 8. >> get away from me! >> get away from me you [ bleep ]. >> reporter: do you think a lot of that stuff is true? >> no. >> reporter: voters are flooded with hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of hit pieces in their mailboxes and they are getting tired of it. >> i don't even read it. i don't. it just to me is a waste of paper, waste of a tree. >> reporter: in the district eight council race rose herrera
6:07pm
is also the target of a hit piece targeting race. the piece points out that she not a latina. her maiden name is jesse. her married name from a previous marriage is herrera. she says that was insulting. >> thank you, len ramirez. checking bay area headlines this evening, parts of a big rig are hauled away after the overturned truck shut down interstate 680 near pleasanton. chp says a big rig driver was northbound before drifting on the shoulder and overcorrecting. his rig crashed into the center divider and then flipped over. most of the wreck spilled across all of the southbound lanes. and take a look at this. this is near the stoneridge exit on 680. all lanes are open now but it was a mess. traffic is still backed up.
6:08pm
the freeway was a parking lot for most of the afternoon. all lanes reopened about an hour ago. again, a live look from chopper 5. let's go upstairs and you can see that those two big rig tow trucks are hooking up what's left of that double tractor-trailer and pulling it out. and traffic is beginning to slowly returning to normal in the southbound direction. thousands of transit riders waited for shuttles in san francisco after muni halted metro service this morning. the stations from embarcadero to west portal shut down for three hours after a train struck and killed a man walking in the tunnel. it's unclear why he was in there. muni service resumed around 10:30. san francisco police cracking down on homeless campers in the castro district. today crews removed some benches that used to be there at the harvey milk plaza outside the muni station. police fielded a lot of complaints about the homeless
6:09pm
sleeping on the benches. like oh, no. they are not doing this again. >> armed with a baseball bat, how a bay area mother fought off burglars in her bathrobe. >> good friday evenly to you, meteorologist paul deanno with your forecast. and if you are a fan of cloud cover i strongly encourage you to go outside and soak it in now because there aren't going to be many clouds in the forecast. find out how long we're going to stay sunny coming up. >> this man thought he was being watched. and he was right. >> you can very clearly identify me getting out of the car with my two daughters. >> who is taking thousands of photos and why there's a good chance you're in them. coming up next. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
6:10pm
6:11pm
video helped lead to a man's accused of attacking a muni station agent. police say san francisco police say this video helped lead to a man who is accused of attacking a
6:12pm
muni station agent. police say the suspect cyclist kicked and punched the worker repeatedly after he told him bikes are not allowed on the platform. this happened last month at the van ness station. the agent is still recovering from his injuries and cannot go back to work yet. the 20-year-old suspect faces 3 felonies charges. two women targeted by burglars twice in as many weeks take matters into their own hands. cbs 5 reporter da lin, what happened? >> reporter: ken, the woman was really fed up that the two burglars targeted her health twice in two weeks, so she picked up a bat and went after the burglars and their car. reporter: a 55-year-old woman used this aluminum baseball bat to chase off two would-be burglars, their second attempt to break in, in nine days. the woman declined to talk on
6:13pm
camera. her 22-year-old daughter says her mother wanted to make sure the burglars don't return by confronting them. >> it had happened a week ago and probably knew what was going on and so she was like, oh, no. they are not doing this again. >> reporter: the family is still shaken up and asked me not to identify them or the house. it happened last friday morning around 9:30 on saint james drive. police say the two men in their 20s first rang the doorbell. when no one responded, they smashed this window to try to get in. it turned out the homeowner was home. >> she was in her bathrobe and grabbed this bat and chased up the stairs and swept it into their trunk. >> reporter: wait a minute here. so your mom was in a bathrobe. >> yeah. her crime-fighting outfit, yeah. >> reporter: and in her blue fuzzy bathrobe, the woman tells me she swung at the burglars' car as they sped off, denting the car's trunk. piedmont police say while they understand her frustration, them people to avoid confronting the bad guys.
6:14pm
>> it's best just to be a good witness, get good information on the description of the vehicle, the suspects. >> reporter: police say those same burglars tried to break in on october 17th and that time the daughter this young woman here was home and scared them away. >> the first time i was scared because it was like they could have been in my house. >> reporter: the family fells me -- >> reporter: the family tells me before these latest attempts, someone successfully broke into the house twice in the last several years. police are still looking for those two men and unfortunately, the homeowner doesn't have a good description of the suspects. the police say they have seen an increase in residential burglaries here in piedmont and say 10% more than last year. >> da lin reporting live from piedmont, thank you. whether you parked in front of your house or at a red light there is a good chance you and your car are under surveillance
6:15pm
and you have no idea. one bay area man thought he was being watched and found out he was right. cbs 5's allen martin on who is scanning your every move. >> reporter: whether it's cell phones, gps or email, the intersection of technology and privacy was paved long ago. back when the internet was known as the information superhighway. now it seems the road is wide open and wherever it leads you're not only being watched, you're being photographed. >> it was obvious there was something ditch about the police car. >> reporter: he had he heard about the police department's license plate scanner and saw the specially equipped car and began to wonder. he asked for public records and photos. >> i simply requested not just information about both my cars that have been photographed by the license plate scanner but requested details about how many records they had gathered since the system started being used. >> reporter: to his surprise over two years police had taken
6:16pm
about 120 pictures of him and his car one a week, one in his car, one close by, one where he was at home. but to mike all of them showed disturbingly personal information. >> in at least one of those pictures you can clearly identify me getting out of my car with my two daughters when i'm at the library, a friend's house on a different street or in front of the coffee shop. >> technology is a critical aspect of law enforcement in today's age. >> reporter: in the bay area san leandro police have had the scanner since 2008. >> this is a great resource for us. >> reporter: the lieutenant says the license plate scanner can alert officer of violent criminals behind the people. he says it's helped solve an armed carjacking, burglary, even a murder in las vegas. >> we're not worried about the other things that people are doing that are legal. >> reporter: many are unconvinced. >> right now it's the wild, wild west out there. there are no limits. >> reporter: the south bay state senator joe simitian
6:17pm
offered a bill to limit how long police agencies could keep the license plate information. under intense lobbying by law enforcement and private companies, simitian dropped the legislation. >> we have private sector companies with half a billion records of motorists' movements. they are sharing that information. sometimes with law enforcement. sometimes with banks. who knows who else will have access to the information. >> reporter: this surveillance video shows an arrest at arden fair mall in sacramento. secure guards using of the license plate scanner have recovered nearly 70 stolen cars in their parking lots in four years. guards say the scanners have led to arrests for shoplifting, identity theft, even parole violations. >> this is a picture of me about to get into my car and head off to work. >> reporter: mike says it's not the outcome of the use of the scanners that he has a problem with. it's the information retention. >> my issue with the license plates scanners isn't that they recognize these plates. it's that they are retaining this database of information on people and they are keeping
6:18pm
that information indefinitely. i don't think that's legitimate. >> reporter: allen martin, cbs 5. >> right now, san leandro keeps its scan information indefinitely but says it is looking into policies that would change that. san francisco and san jose are among more than a dozen bay area police agencies also using those scanners along with the california highway patrol. speaking of change, we have to change those clocks this weekend, huh? >> oh, yes. we are falling back. >> temperatures are going up to record high levels as soon as we are falling back. the sunset will be early. but before that sunset we'll be talking about temperatures in the 80s. mostly cloudy outside right now. clouds roll in in the afternoon. what a gorgeous sunset from the mount vaca cam. oakland warm at 67.
